TCS will implement a monitoring framework at the command centre, capable of anticipating, addressing, and preempting issues in the value chain that could impact the broader financial services ecosystem. This framework incorporates a mechanism for streamlined communication with a team of experts and vendors, expediting the identification of root causes and collaborative issue resolution. The command centre is equipped to oversee teams and vendors, enabling the prompt resolution of disruptions, urgent security alerts, or events, and can integrate value-added services from partner ecosystems.
